Now things are getting tough. Having to pull the runners out a bit to clear the AC idler pulley bracket has now left no room for the EWG on the front of the collector where I wanted it.

Just a rough mockup.

Tight radius 90s would have made things a bit different, but those are so expensive :(

Never mind going up, it would be in the way of water lines. What about back towards the dp?

I think the best possible option would to be on the back of the collector between the collector and the head pointing down. Still not sure yet. Need to play with some more stuff so I can tack all this together.

It would help if I had 3 or 4 more arms.

Not sure yet, wont be able to tell until the collector is on but i have a feeling that if you assemble the WG first, then install the manifold it may work.

Ok, now we're on to something. As long as the hood closes I dont really see any issues running it this way with a nice brace to the motor mount or somewhere else on the block. AC compatible bottom mount anyone?

Photobucket is being a *****.

Thoughts? Why does this seem too good and easy to be true?
